Moree Council had an offer made to them to erect a garbage destruc tor, single cell, front-feed type, with steel chimney and motor-driven fan, which would burn one ton per hour which would burn one ton per hour, for the sum of £1000. This is a matter worthy the consideration of councils for the effectual disposal of the house garbage which, at the pre sent time, is largely got rid of by dumping it in any place in the area where there is a hole which requires filling.

Not on the Roll. A question arose in the Ryde Coun cil at last meeting, on the subject of the many names that had been left oir the roll of electors. An alderman moved,-"That steps be at once tak en to have the names of property owners, which had been left oil' the electoral roll, put on." The mover said it was very necessary that they should all be on in view of the coun cil in the near future having to take a vote on the question of raising a loan. A discussion arose as to the power of the council to do this, but as 110 one present seemed certain as to what course could be taken, the Clerk promised to look into the matter, and report at next meeting. [We should have thought that everyone knew that when the list passed the revision court it was im possible to make any alteration in it until another supplementary list was prepared at the end of next year.-Ed.] -

Looking at the parish map of Gos ford, it would appear as if that por tion of Erina Shire was surrounded with important reserves, but we are informed that when these spots come to be examined, same are found to be nothing but rough, rocky hills, or mud flats.

Cycling. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
It cannot sto said that any of tlie country amateurs who took part in the "country carnival" of the N.S.W. Cyclists' Union, on Wednesday, Feb ruary 22, showed anything approach-: ing championship form. They all occupied long marks, but O'Brien, of Maitland, was the only man to ob tain a place, by running third in the half mile. J. P. Hurley, of Goulburn, seemed to be about the best of the visiting brigade from the country. As amateur racing is being fostered "out back," . the day is not far dis tant, perhaps," when the country dis tricts will produce a champion or two.The best riders in the Queens land;: -team;;; who visited Sydney are coimtry^.men.

Boxing. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
Very/ few enthusiasts expected to hear of 33111 Lang, defeating Sam Langford in their London battle last Aveek, but the majority of Australians did 'hope to hear of him making a, decent' showing. He was.; hopelessly outclassed, however, and^isqualified for the second time in England, on a foul in the' sixth: round, after being badly punished by the clever negro, who would be- a: stone lighter: at least. From the cabled accounts, Lang was badly- punished, and he is : only the second-rater many boxing experts here predicted. The Australian would have been knocked: out in another round or. two, and, knowing this,' he probably preferred to" foul by strik ingliis opponent when the latter' slip per" on to his knees in the sixth round. Langford's latest victory has brought him more prominently than ever into the limelight, and a John son-Langford fight is a thing of the near. future, although Johnson has stipulated that lie must have a side wager of £5000, and a £6000 purse. Johnson will n...

Sculling. ?????? ,'-i| The Hagney-Day match on the. ; Farramatta on Saturday, terminated ; unsatisfactorily. There was -very i little between the pair for the first ?.three-quarters of a mile, and then Day started to open up a lead. lie was leading Hagney by a length and a half at a mile, and was in the lat ter's water, and not giving him room to clear the land, when Hagney put in a brilliant spurt, and drew level ? with the northern rivers sculler. : There was a mix-up, and Hagney stopped rowing, raising his hand, and claiming a foul. Day also stopped rowing, and in vited Hagney to continue the race, but the latter would not. When the men arrived at the umpire's boat, Hagney claimed the race on a foul, and Bill Beach, the umpire, awarded it to him. There was nothing else to do, for Day undoubtedly fouled, the ex-cyclist.

The return match between this State and the South Africans opened at the Cricket Ground on Friday last, and- N.S.W., winning the toss went in and knocked up 415 for the loss of 9. wickets-a good score.
